Power and Performance. You can run the router power and control wires through the SO3 cable tracks instead of having them floating around above the machine. Variable speed control feature provides up to 27,000-RPC, and allows you to optimize bit speed to suit the application I’m going to run mains power to an E-stop which will feed router and SO3 power. LED light and clear plastic fixed base provide superior bit visibility. It has a voltage rating of 120 V and an amp rating of 7.0 amps. I’m not great and it worked for me. If the power requirements are 6 volts DC, then you would connect the positive side of your supply to the RED wire and the ground/negative side to the BLACK wire.

The DWP611PK 1-1/4 HP Max Torque Variable Speed Compact Router Combo Kit with LED's has a 1-1/4 HP motor to deliver power for the toughest applications, and variable speed control for optimal bit speed in each application. Bob, can you share a wiring diagram for your Pid setup running your Dewalt. This controller is not compatible with the 611 without taking it apart and modifying some wiring. You might want to watch a YouTube video about how to desolder components. and Looking for the speed control pot specs, SO3: XXL Mega-Enclosure and Dust Collection, SO3 XXL Enclosure Upgrades - computer shelf, control panel labels, gas springs, SO3: How to mod the Dewalt DW611 for remote speed, light and power control, http://www.amazon.com/OHM-Linear-Taper-Rotary-Potentiometer/dp/B00X73YUE4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00. But yea i just hooked it to a 9v to check it and it does work. These instructions are for the D26204K bought in Australia. This forum is the best!! This is not unlike what SuperPID has one do - except that it adds an optical pick up and provides additional RPM control. Last Refresh: Tue Dec 22 2020 15:27:32 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time) Make sure you note which one is positive and which is negative. No more 1-6 setting. I had to do that. This is used for closed loop feedback so the system can add power under load to maintain the rpm setting. Dewalt DWP611 Pdf User Manuals. Offers lasting durability.

A few photos would be nice as well. I was looking at the led assembly that was removed from a router that had a split shaft that i had to tear apart to try to save my precise bits Collet and nut. The speed control on the Dewalt is very good at maintaining RPM under load so unless you need lower RPMs you don’t need a seperate controller. You don’t want a lot of instantaneous torque tweaking your carriage. There’s no need for an optical feedback since the router provides closed loop feedback itself. If you want to go by the book you would run the low voltage LED and pot wires out of a separate hole and not place the 120VAC power wires in the cable track. It is pricey and a bit of a pain to install, but it works very well. The Dewalt DW611 router that is an option offered by C3D has built in closed loop speed control so its a nice router for the price. This means that it can maintain the best motor speed through the whole time you are making the cuts. No Load Speed range 16,000-27,000rpm. That makes the wires look much better and they are easier to handle. I’m not sure but it may blow out the LED’s if you connect them with reverse polarity. But yea i just hooked it to a 9v to check it and it does work. It also includes LED lights in the bottom that turn on when the router is on. I’d definitely be interested in slowing it down a bit. Closed loop should do a good job. If I decide to spend money on an upgrade it will be for a real spindle with a VFD. EDIT: Heeey, that Amazon speed controller even goes as far as to claim “full power and torque at all speeds.” Decent reviews, too. You can set the RPM to a known value. This mod is essentially free other than the cost of a 5k linear pot ( a few $ and the wire needed). If you think of steps that are missing just let me know and I’ll fill them in as best I can.

It’s been awhile since I read this write up, could it also be used to slow the Dewalt down below the 16,000 minimum? Probably true. I know. he led’s from the router are only two wires. The Amazon router controller also does not work with soft start or variable speed routers. You may ask why I didn’t just use a router speed controller. Clean cable management. When I engrave with a v-bit, it is .005 doc and 60 ipm. Connect the LED wires to a power switch fed by a 6VDC power supply. There’s a ton of “right hand rule” going on when you spin one up….
